Tabloid Monday: Angelina ruins Thanksgiving
28 November 2011
It has been a dark, sorry world since The Weekly World News stopped publishing. Let’s not forget some of their finest headlines:
ABRAHAM LINCOLN WAS A WOMAN!
JESUS ACTION FIGURE HEALS THE SICK!
10 NEW COMMANDMENTS FOUND!
…not to mention the ongoing Bat Boy chronicles, which I awaited with bated breath. Ah, waiting on line to buy one’s groceries was a delight.
So thank you, thank you In Touch, for offering me ANGELINA RUINS THANKSGIVING during yesterday’s sorry-ass post-Thanksgiving trip to the supermarket.
Finally, a tabloid that really understands the Angelina/tabloid nexus — the core of complex and unmitigated hate that tabloids pile on that beautiful/freakish-looking woman week after week. I feel that now I understand better the nature of what they seem to believe is our collective hatred.
Thank you, In Touch. It’s still not Bat Boy, but I have hope again for the future.
